I need to keep this in mind. I thought I had been, but I had a complete meltdown yesterday that made it ridiculously apparent that no, I have not been keeping this in mind.
While I sat on his lap sobbing trying to explain why I was upset, Homie actually said these words to me. It’s funny because I’ve never showed him this quote. I’ve never told him that I pull up this image regularly to remind myself. But these were the words he said to me in the middle of my meltdown.
It’s not failure if I’m still trying because it isn’t the end yet.
It is now officially wedding week!
Yesterday on my #coffeeneuring trip (more on that later) I rode by the ceremony site and it looked beautiful!
I successfully obtained the marriage license on Friday and got post-cards which they are using in place of a guest book. I checked the White House Gift Shop for postcards because I thought they might have some really cool ones.
They did not. Especially not for $1 or $2 apiece. I continued down 15th Street and perused the gift shop truck vendors until I found one that had a good variety and then bought the postcards I needed for 25 cents apiece.
The only crisis still currently waiting to be solved is to get Mergsie’s pants (that will make sense later, promise) fixed. Hopefully that will be accomplished by my tailor first thing on Friday morning.
It’s possible and probably likely that some other crisis will arise this week, but I think we have enough of the prep done that we can handle it.
I’m getting excited!
